Can I Bet on Betonline From The State of Kansas?

BetOnline is one of the largest online sportsbooks in the world and you most certainly can access and bet at the popular sportsbook site from the state of Kansas.

Sports Betting in Kansas

With a population of 2.9 million, Kansas has no shortage of active and potential sports bettors.  The state has a loyal sports fan base for the Chiefs, who play in neighboring Missouri and some decent enough college football teams.  Make no mistake about it though, the state has one of the most successful college basketball programs in the nation, encompassing multiple schools that include the Jayhawks, Wildcats and Shockers of Wichita State.

BetOnline vs. State Regulated Apps

Governor Laura Kelly signed into law legislation passed that permits sports betting on May 12, 2022.  That law took effect on July 1, 2022.

BetOnline will not be regulated by the state, and therefore will only be available via its browser-based website (as opposed to an app). 

Those 18 and up can play on BetOnline.  The state-regulated apps will require individuals to be 21 and up.

BetOnline allows for plentiful more wagering options, often betting odds and promos (welcome bonus up to $1000).

The Kansas Lottery and Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission were working on regulations and contracts with stakeholders ahead of July 1, but, as of the second week of July, there were yet to be any state-regulated apps up and running.  Betting on these apps might not occur until the 2022 football season gets underway, and there were no guarantees the apps would be up and running in September. 

BetOnline will be unable to partner with MLS Sporting KC and Kansas Speedway.  Both sports entities will be limited to working in conjunction with the state-regulated websites.

BetOnline is not required to report your winnings to the state or federal government.  And while you are encouraged to pay your taxes, the good thing about this is that your gambling activity does not become public record (i.e think divorces, child care, etc..).  Those playing at the state-regulated apps should be aware that a tax rate of 10% will be applied to all sports betting revenue in Kansas. Additionally, a federal tax of 24% is tacked onto gambling winnings in the U.S.

What BetOnline Offers

  • 50% signup bonus up to $1000
  • New Bitcoin bonuses - 100% signup
  • 35% reloads
  • Player and game props most sports
  • Election betting, horse racing, entertainment and news-related props updated daily

Team Watch

The Kansas State Wildcats were the biggest liability among the 2022 college football features at BetOnline as of July.  They had the second biggest bet count.  It can be assumed that a significant number of these futures wagers are coming from within the state of Kansas and that those living here might know something the rest of the nation hasn't quite caught onto.

BetOnline had the Wildcats winning Over/Under 6.5 regular season games in 2022.
